Organic raw wheatgrass powder may support a healthy detoxification response of the liver, blood, and gastrointestinal tract. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass may support the body's ability to fight off free radicals and carcinogens. Wheatgrass may also support a healthy metabolic response and the body's enzyme systems by supporting a healthy red-blood-cell count. It may also support healthy blood pressure levels by possibly supporting the dilation the blood pathways throughout the body. Recent studies suggest that wheatgrass may support a healthy immune system response.
Wheatgrass Green Powder: Convenient and Incredibly high in Nutrition
Wheatgrass Powder should not be confused with Wheatgrass Juice Powder. Wheatgrass Powder is made by drying the whole grass leaf and then milling it into a fine powder. Wheatgrass Juice Powder is made by first juicing the Wheatgrass and removing all of the cellulose so a pure juice concentrate is left. Then the juice is dried into a powder.
Raw and Super Green: More Benefits of wheatgrass powder
Wheatgrass is rich in protein and includes all eight of the essential amino acids, as well as 13 of the remaining 16 nonessential amino acids. Besides containing most vitamins, minerals and a natural source of living chlorophyll, organic wheatgrass has three other special components which make it particularly valuable:
- Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)
- P4D1 Enzyme
- Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs)
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) - The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of SOD in our system. Increased amounts of SOD cause our body to repair itself quicker. Additionally SOD may act to support a healthy inflammation response.
P4D1 Enzyme - P4D1 has been found to do two things in the human body. It is the first known substance to actually support the body’s ability to repair DNA molecules. It is possible that disease cells can be repaired with P4D1 so that when they reproduce they will actually produce good cells. P4D1 has also been shown in laboratory tests to eat the protein sheath off an unhealthy cell so that the white blood cells can attack and destroy them.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) - GAGs form an important component in the synovial fluid lubricant in body joints, and chondroitins which can be found in connective tissues, cartilage, and tendons.
